Sanders  blasted 13 Senators for lacking “guts” to stand up to pharma after voting against his bill driving down drug costs by importing them from Canada.

“The Democratic Party has got to make it very clear that they are prepared to stand up to powerful special interests like the pharmaceutical industry and like Wall Street, and they’re not going to win elections and they’re not going to be doing the right thing for the American people unless they have the guts to do that,” said Sanders, the leader of outreach efforts for Senate Democrats.

“That 13 Democrats did not is disappointing. I absolutely hope that in the coming weeks and months you’re going to see many of them develop the courage to stand up to Pharma.”

So the Democratic Party must display real guts? OK, how about talking a little about foreign policy, most especially our perpetual war machine which robs the 99% and handsomely rewards the war profiteers. One might also mention in passing the millions of innocent people who are slaughtered by the war machine. And, whatever you do, DO NOT mention Israel and the U.S.'s deep commitment to aiding and abetting the genocide of the Palestinians and theft of their land and resources, a commitment which is regularly confirmed by every one of "our" U.S. Senators. One must be polite and talk only about the subjects which the elites are comfortable addressing. Now play fair. Don't break the rules.

Break the rules. If we don't we'll die by the rules - the established corporate rule: he with the gold rules!
